|Two dozen tough American fighters have become the first competitors on Bodog.TV's first Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) television show.|
The show is setting out to find the toughest fighters in the world. The debut episode of the weekly series, BodogFight, airs September 12 on Men’s Network, a Dish Network satellite channel, and online at Bodog.TV.
The show will be an onslaught of head-to-head bouts with the field being whittled down to the top seven. The elite modern-day warriors who survive will form the U.S. team that squares off against fighters from the Russian Red Devil Sports Club, home to some of the world’s nastiest MMA competitors. The USA vs. Russia grudge match will take place in Los Angeles on November 4 and be broadcast live on pay-per-view.
The show is the brainchild of Bodog.com,s billionaire Founder and CEO Calvin Ayre, 'With the immense popularity surrounding MMA as a sport, hosting and producing our own world-class sporting event marks the next step in the evolution of our entertainment brand. BodogTV has evolved into an international TV production powerhouse.'
The series will also follow Ayre's two special agents – rock phenomenon Bif Naked in the United States and her beautiful Russian counterpart Natalia Vilakova – in their search for the toughest, most ruthless Mixed Martial Arts athletes the two countries have to offer. Once selected by Ayre, the fighters travel to Costa Rica, where they will compete for the opportunity to be part of the American contingent that will advance to battle the world famous Russian Red Devil Team.
